According to Accenture, customer satisfaction in the insurance industry is one of the lowest, and 83% of consumers dissatisfied with the claim handling process are planning to switch their insurance companies. On top of that, insurance firms’ processing costs represent up to 15% of total insurance claims paid out annually (up to €20 billion), caused by a large workforce and complex, tedious, manual processes.

MotionsCloud has developed a solution to these ongoing problems; an innovative, secure AI-driven insurance claims engine that creates significant time and cost-effectivity for insurance companies and boosts customer experience. Their technology equips inspection teams with an automated tool that reduces the claims cycle from 10+ days to 3 hours and saves up to 75% of processing costs.

Cutting insurance claim time processing and costs

At MotionsCloud, we leverage augmented reality (AR) and computer vision (AI) technologies to fill the gap of vehicle and property claims/inspections processes. We provide a speedy and seamless experience for consumers, cutting up to 75% of processing time, cost, and leakages of an insurance company, agency/broker, or a third-party administrator.
